True story.

Meet Max (3), Julian (2) and Sasha (2).

Don't get me wrong, children are adorable but who has the time to do this 24/7?!

I drew this as an excuse to try to new brush pen! It's so pretty!

I totally feel you there. I have four little cousins I babysit. They're like my own personal birth control.

AHAHAH!! I babysit three kids too! Liam (6), Conner (3), and Charlotte (19 months).
That's exactly how it is there, but I love them and definitely want kids of my own one day. :)

I completely agree. I'm babysitting right now. It's nap time so I took a break and came on DA :)
But, yes. Children are VERY needy.

wow sounds freakisly familiar tho babies love me the minute i hold them its nap time even when theyre teeathing(sp) but past the age of 2 forget it they want nothing to do with me other tan using me as a zuko piggyback machene (it also doesnt help that they got the idea from watching avatar with me ....>.>shame on me but i have alot of cousins and christmas if my famlys fave time of dumping them on me .....i always tell them i liked you better when you still drooled after you ate.

So true. You realize that you never knew that you actually hated children.

Wait til their a couple years apart to have each child, that way you'll have little helpers. :D

Ha! :lmao: I'm an aunt and I love my nieces and nephews to bits, but the best part of them is being able to send them home with their parents!

yeah....sometimes I think kids are the best form of birth control :)

Ah, see the trick is making sure the kids have a gap in their age. I'm 19, and my siblings are 16 and 12. A good 4 year gap or so helps ;D

I know right? How do you even fit 3 car-seats into one fuel-efficient car? It's madness!

Same. I worked at a school/toy supply store geared towards elementary schoolers and younger.
Never have kids.

I heartily agree! Baby-sitting has put me way off kids. >.<

Oh, parenting isn't THAT bad. It's actually better to space them out than have them close together. Because then the oldest wants to help out and turns super sweet till the little one is old enough to steal toys =P And THEN it's hell, hahaha. My son's four now, and there was nothing more fun than raising him. While yes, it can be a nightmare (imagine this strip, only without them strapped down, and replace the food with crayons, chocolate milk, and babypowder [I have pictures on my devart for proof]. GOOD TIMES!), in the end, it is sooooo worth it. Now my little boy is all groweded up! He starts kindergarten next fall. I want those hellish years back!

I'll just have to pump out another one in the next few years ^^
